Get to know our commitments
There can be no excellence, or competitive performance without considering health and safety, therefore, these are our top priorities. We have established ambitious goals to promote zero harms environment for our employees and eliminate fatalities and they are being diligently pursued. The foundations for our corporate actions are established in the Global Safety & Health Policy, and the Life Saving Rules.
We are committed to customer success through excellence, and we know that excellence will only be achieved if we act with integrity, ethics and transparency. That is why our Values and Code of Conduct reinforce our commitment to compliance. We expect our employees at all levels - from operational functions to the board of directors - as well as shareholders and partners to follow the guidelines of the Code of Conduct and to comply with all laws, regulations and policies in all regions and countries in which we operate.
We have maintained a Compliance Program, with communication and training campaigns aimed at all employees and directors. We monitor the effectiveness of the program regularly, and take the necessary measures in case of infractions or oversights. We also encourage the reporting of any suspected wrongdoing through our Ethics Line, and we do not tolerate any type of reprisal. This channel - public and open to all, inside and outside the organization - constitutes a way to make complaints in a confidential and anonymous way. All reports are investigated and addressed in accordance with internal policies and current legislation.
We invest in R&D to develop new technologies and improve existing ones to promote eco-efficiency in our processes and products. Moreover, we are committed to protecting water sources and biodiversity, through the management of protected areas in the vicinity of our units. Our goals are in line with the Global Environmental Policy and Green Rules and our commitments under the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
Therefore, we are constantly working to improve our dialogue with stakeholders and promote quality of life, which also results in a better and more transparent environment for business.
